Description

Max Baca and Los Texmaniacs are the past, present, and future of conjunto music. Combine a hefty helping of Tex Mex conjunto, simmer with several parts Texas rock, add a daring dash of well-cured blues and R&B riffs, and you’ve cooked up the tasty GRAMMY-winning Los Texmaniacs groove. Max Baca is a legend on the bajo sexto, and Josh Baca is fast attaining legendary status on the accordion; with those two instruments, they create the core of the lively conjunto sound. Los Texmaniacs are the new worldwide kings of Texas roots music, feeding the masses with only the best in musical fare, cooked up from wide-ranging experience in touring and recording. While Max Baca has participated in eleven GRAMMY Award-winning projects, the band’s first Smithsonian Folkways recording in 2010 won a GRAMMY. This was followed up with a nomination for their 2019 album, Borders y Bailes. Whether playing an intimate house concert as an acoustic trio or rocking stage/theater/street dances, the band always entertains and educates. This music is not a dusty museum relic, but a vital heartbeat for a group of musicians who truly have one foot on either side of the border and live a daily code-switching identity.
